HYFIN Anti-Gala

Join us for our inaugural HYFIN ANTI-GALA on Thursday, August 3rd, 6:00pm at the Marcus Performing Arts Center. Radio Milwaukee’s largest fundraiser to date, it promises to be an evening full of inspiration, appreciation and celebration of the Black culture in Milwaukee.

What is an Anti-Gala? 

A place where you can be yourself. Dress to the theme or what brings you joy. The theme is Afrofuturism and we are here for it! We want you to come as your best self and join in the celebration of our creative and innovative Black community.

Through the lens of Afrofuturism’s historic and poignant engagement with African American history and popular culture, this event features:

  • Intimate performances by nationally recognized artists MADISON MCFERRIN and SILAS SHORT
  • Curated menu by CHEF JASON ALSTON, owner Heaven’s Table & culinary instructor at MATC
  • Fashion showing from nationally recognized EDESSA FASHION SCHOOL
  • Awards ceremony celebrating local innovators and trailblazers

Throughout her fruitful independent career, spanning three EPs and multiple collaborations, Madison has earned accolades from the New York Times, NPR, The FADER, and Pitchfork, who named her a Rising Artist in 2018. Her genre-bending work has led to Questlove dubbing her early sound “soul-appella.”

“Lush production and instrumentation accompany her angelic voice.” — AFROPUNK

“One of the most promising new faces within the [soulful r&b] genre over the past year.” — Hypebeast

Silas Short

Silas, who synthesizes influences from soul and classic R&B, is the latest phenomenon to come out of our city. Short’s career began one night on Christmas eve when he DM’d one of his favorite artists. That DM landed him at Stones Throw Records, the same label that has worked with J.Dilla, MF Doom and currently represents artist like Knowledge and Nx Worries.

“His voice drips like honey throughout the track — a perfect song for a weekend morning spent curled up with someone you love.” – NPR

“Following his 2021 EP, Drawing, this next body of work leans into collaboration and promises to beam with Silas’ signature musicianship and production—fluid, soothing, thoughtful, and pristine.” – Playback
